Snowzilla - Giant snowman rises again in Alaska — mysteriously

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A giant snowman named Snowzilla has mysteriously appeared again this year — despite the city's cease-and-desist order.

Someone again built the giant snowman in Billy Powers' front yard in an east Anchorage neighborhood. Snowzilla reappeared before dawn Tuesday.

Powers is not taking credit. When questioned Tuesday afternoon, he insisted Snowzilla just somehow happened, again.

For the last three years, Snowzilla — to the delight of some and the chagrin of others — has been a very large feature in Powers' yard. In 2005, Snowzilla rose 16 feet. He had a corncob pipe and a carrot nose and two eyes made out of beer bottles........

......"I have tried to jump through every goofy hoop they have sent to me. I have never been confrontational and it goes on and on and on and it is so goofy," he said. "Some of it is unfounded, some is just outrageous."

The city said it did not expect to take any further action until after Christmas.

Bah Humbug to Alaska!

Too cool, I want one!
My husband once built a giant snow-sculpture, but it had to come down the same day it was built (after pictures of course) due to the graphic, life-like nature, and the Elementary School Children who walked by our house on their way home from school each day.
Merry Christmas!

My dad flooded our backyard one year. We were the only ones in the neighborhood with their own skating rink!
